We just had an alumni reunion on June 4, and Mr W was fondly remembered. I am surprised at how young he was then! He bravely introduced us to the trampoline, encouraging all to reach heights in spite of our hesitation. A Life Lesson for sure! RIP

Mr. Welander was one of my favorite teachers at West Harrison Community High School. He was also an awesome mentor/instructor for our Methodist Youth Fellowship. I'm blessed to have known him. Prayers of comfort to his loved ones.

Coach Welander was a great influence in my life. He was a great baseball coach but taught me so much more than the game. I always had the greatest respect for him as a teacher, coach and person. May he rest in peace.

Coach saw me shooting hoops across the street of my dad's shop with an old worn out basket ball. I was in 7th grade. He stop by and gave me a new high school ball . He said, "You keep shooting ." Spent a lot of hours with coach W playing for him. He really cared about kids at COU.
